DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Scattered afternoon showers and storms can be expected once again today. These showers and storms, like the ones we saw yesterday, will have the potential to become marginally severe, with damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph and large hail the main threats. They will also be capable of dropping lots of rain over a short amount of time, which could lead to some localized street flooding and ponding of water on the roadways in spots. We’ll warm up to the low 90s prior to the arrival of rain and storms.
Rain chances will go up to 60% on Friday. Scattered showers and storms will again be most likely during the PM hours. With a little more cloud cover around compared to today, most locations should only top out in the upper 80s to close out the work week.
The weekend should be slightly drier as a ridge settles in over the Southeast. Saturday will likely be the drier of the two days, with only a 30% chance for showers. Rain chances on Sunday will be just a tad higher at around 40%. With more sunshine and dry time expected both days, highs will return to the low 90s.
Monday through Wednesday of next week will feature similar rain chances to the weekend, with each day being in the 30-40% range. No change in temperature is expected, as highs stay in the low 90s and lows remain mild but seasonable in the 70s.
